    When I start an adb shell (or use the android terminal emulator) and run commands as root I am not returned to a command prompt after the output is listed. So, for example, if I run the 'date' command the output is listed and I can't do anything after that except for Ctrl-C to kill the shell. If I run the same command but not as root there is no problem and after the output is listed I am returned to command prompt. (HTC Incredible 2, AN. 2.3.4) Any ideas as to what's going on? BTW, this happens with other commands as well ls, etc.

    $ date

    su
    # date

    ^C
    C:\Android\platform-tools>adb shell
    $ su
    su
    # date

    $ date

    Open terminal emulator and type su <press enter>

    That should return the # result (if rooted) or $ (if not rooted). You should then be given a new line to continue a new command prompt. If not, uninstall the emulator, reboot the device then re-install terminal emulator.

    Thanks for the response. I tried what you suggested but I'm still having the same problem. The problem also occurs when I use adb.
